All of a sudden you're back again
I thought you were happy with whoever
Or did you dream about me now and then
Did you look up at the stars
And feel something for the constellations

All those lovers circling 'round their loves
Slings and arrows dogs and lions
Rivers separating touch from touch
The comedy of distance the tragedy of separation

Am I making all the right moves
Am I singing you the right blues
Is there a time when I could call you
Just to see how you are doing

I said how is it that you come back to me
You don't need the stories of my scars
Or in the stars to tell you nothing's free
I traded all the innocence I ever had for hesitation

I said wont you tell me where you've been
You put a finger to my lips
And then you kiss me once and once again
The crickets all leapt up and met the moon with a standing ovation

Am I making all the right moves
Am I singing you the right blues
Is there a time when I could call you
Just to see how you are doing

I heard the night birds picking up the song
You threw your hair back and you sang along
And I realized that I might lose you you might lose me
Drift apart in the night never know why and not know how

I said what if we are like the northern sky
What if there are things that come between us
That we can't take back and we can't make right
You said I don't know darling but I'm here with you
And we're coming to the chorus now

Am I making all the right moves
Am I singing you the right blues
Is there a time when I could call you
Just to see how you are doing
